Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.

Passage: Judges 3:1
Series: Judges (2021)
Duration: 1 hr 2 mins 6 secs
How is our country committing cultural suicide? Listen to this lesson to learn that when we compromise with the devil’s worldview we become paganized. Hear about a mysterious man named Shamgar who was able to defeat six hundred Philistines with an ox goad. Learn why God had to use an unbelieving mercenary soldier to deliver Israel. See that God was using a gentile to bless Israel instead of Israel fulfilling its purpose to bless all the gentile nations. Guard your own thinking from being transformed by the evil culture surrounding us.

Passage: 1 Samuel 5:3-12
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 58 mins 53 secs
Caution! Parts of this lesson may be offensive to those who insist all religious beliefs should be treated with equal respect. Listen to learn that when the Ark of the Covenant was captured by the Philistines they rejoiced in triumph which soon turned to terror. God showed His superiority by wreaking havoc on their god, Dagon, and sending humiliating and painful tumors which decimated the population wherever the Ark was taken. As we face the problems in the world today, we need to remember to relax because God is always in control and is bringing His ultimate plans to pass.

Passage: 1 Samuel 5:1-2
Series: 1st and 2nd Samuel (2015)
Duration: 57 mins 57 secs
Why should we learn about the events that happened long ago in ancient Israel? Listen to this lesson to hear about a time when it looked like God had been defeated. See how the Philistines captured the Ark of the Covenant. Find out where they took the Ark and how discouraged the people of Israel became. Learn four things that this defeat showed about how God works in human history. When we feel God has let us down and that doctrine doesn’t work for us, see that we need to confess our sins and make God the centerpiece of our life.
